Facing a small but influential opposition to a permanent plaza in Astoria, DOT installed a one-day demonstration on Saturday to give neighborhood residents a sneak peak of how the street could be transformed. The demo, a first for DOT, was installed before Queens Community Board 1 votes on the proposal on September 11.

Community Board 1 will vote on the Newtown Ave Plaza proposal at their full board meeting on Sep 11, 7PM.

The idea is to create a pedestrian plaza at Newtown Ave and 30th Avenue.

Please get out to the board meeting and make your voice heard - for a better neighborhood!

Here's a link to the proposal: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/downloads/p ... rkshop.pdf

And to the DOT's Facebook page for the proposal: https://www.facebook.com/#!/NewtownAve

And to a news story about the one-day experiment of closing the block.
